Thank you for rocking Operation Teen Book Drop!

Thanks to everyone who participated in Operation Teen Book Drop!

You can read about all of the awesome YA authors who rocked the drop, see the amazing TBD wishlist put together by Colleen Mondor over at GuysLitWire, and visit Powell's Books to buy a book for a Native teen.

Many hands devoted themselves to helping readergirlz get books into the hands of Native teens living on tribal lands: GuysLitWire, YALSA, If I Can Read, I Can Do Anything, publishers, and the many librarians, teachers, and champions of YA and Native teens who helped us make this project a reality!

Dia Calhoun, Rachel McDonald, Lorie Ann Grover, Justina Chen:

Thanks also to Richard "Blackhawk" Kapusta and Symbion Project for the haunting trailer music, and to Cory Doctorow for plugging his vast network into the TBD cause.

Dia Calhoun, Lorie Ann Grover, Cory Doctorow, and Holly Cupala:

Here's to another fantastic year - thank you, everyone!
